West was reassigned to minor league camp Wednesday. The 27-year-old right-hander was extremely effective in keeping runners off base this spring, posting a .667 WHIP, but he was touched up for three home runs over just 6.0 innings of work. He'll head down to minor league camp to continue to work on his craft and he'll likely start the year in Triple-A Oklahoma City's bullpen.
West signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of True Blue Los Angeles reports. West recorded two appearances with the Dodgers during the summer, but the 27-year-old has mainly pitched in the minors throughout his seven-year career. He'll likely provide some organizational depth for the Dodgers next season.
Dodgers relief pitcher Matt West , who was designated for assignment on July 11, has cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City, per Truebluela.com. West didn't allow a run in two appearances for the Dodgers this season.
As expected, the Dodgers activated Brandon Beachy from the 60-day disabled list to start Saturday's game, the team announced. Beachy has been recovering from Tommy John surgery and hasn't pitched in a MLB game since August, 2013. To make room on the active roster, the team optioned RHP Josh Ravin to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Ravin was 2-1 with a 6.43 ERA in seven games with the Dodgers. To open a spot on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated RHP Matt West for assignment. He didn't allow a run in two appearances with the team.
The Dodgers have announced that they have dispatched relievers Daniel Coulombe and Matt West to Triple-A Albuquerque. The former has not distinguished himself in four big-league appearances this season. He has given up at least one run in each and owns an 8.53 ERA. West pitched twice after his Friday recall and managed three scoreless innings.
